Amazon is considering selling network switches and is currently conducting a test among a small number of customers. That claims The Information based on its own sources. The first products should appear within a year and a half.
In addition, it wants to offer lower prices than network equipment manufacturer Cisco. According to The Information, the plans would mean a change of course for Amazon, which has always maintained that a complete transition to cloud services would take place. Although several large tech companies use such white-box switches for their own services, Amazon would be one of the first companies to offer them to business customers. Amazon has not responded to the rumor.
